    plenty more switch sales for them as well i imagine, it'll be catching up with the PS4 at this rate! not bad for a console aimed at 12 years olds who dont care for 4k gaming lol

    It looks ridiculously similar to lets go engine so I assume they are one and the same. As you say, I will probably buy it but not as excited for this as I am for Mario Marker 2 and some other games that hopefully come out this year.

    Me too. Feels like they are scraping the barrel with a lot of them. I know plenty of the gen 1 are unimaginative but after that, things just got weird and lazy. Meltan FFS

    Definitely on my top 5 list of games I'm anticipating now.

    Link's Awakening, Luigi's Mansion 3, Mario Maker 2, Animal Crossing, and now Pokemon.

    Starters look pants, mind you.

    But none of the PK games have been about the graphics or pushing the consoles graphical capabilities.

    From the gifs and images I've seen so far it definitely looks a lot more detailed than Let's Go. That's Christmas in the bag for Nintendo, then.

    I wonder what this means for Animal Crossing. Maybe we'll get it earlier, or more likely later...

    I was referring to the starter Pokemon, not the graphics.

    I think this will be the hardest starter pokemon choice for me as all three look adorable

    22million sales in just under 2 years isn't bad although the ps4 has sold 91million in 5+years so the switch isn't doing to bad imo

    It's sold 7.5m more than the PS4 in the same time period and has the most marketable gaming product in the world coming out this year. Not to mention a new Mario Kart will drive sales at some point too.

    And? The PS4 has so far sold 91 million units world wide.

    It’s not like it’s not got a Pokemon game on it, I think you’re being unrealistic in thinking it will catch the PS4.

    I don't think it really matters, the Switch looks like it will have great lifetime sales if it maintains it's current projection, whilst the PS4 has already proved itself a success and will most likely beat the original Playstation over the next 12-18 months in total sales.

    Both companies products are very healthy and this is great for gamers.

    It doesn't matter in the slightest. If you're a mature person who just enjoys gaming :D
